HOW TO SEND PICTURES
I have a constant problem with folks sending
HUGE pictures the size of billboards and/or of such high resolution that
they take half an hour to download. I simply cannot use those on the website.
Generally speaking - too many megapixels are totally wasted on a computer
monitor. They just won't reproduce that much detail. Those megapixels are fine for
printing high quality photos on paper, but are worthless online - in fact, they
are wasteful of time, space and patience. I have to keep the website as if everyone had
old dial-up service, because many still do.
I use an average photo size of about 620 X 480 pixels, file size between 20 and
Check to see if your camera has an "e-mail" setting. That's the one to use when
sending pictures by e-mail. For this purpose, many of the new, high priced cameras
are wasted, especially if they don't have an "e-mail" setting. Cheaper cameras
may actually be superior in online service. They seem to work fine.
